How about those companies that color coordinate their tarps with their trucks.


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Just make sure the driver’s clothing doesn’t clash with that color coordinated truck and trailer. WTF

Todd, perhaps you should create a truckfanning website. I might also suggest checking out hankstruckpictures.com. Hank Sudderman created his site as a repository for thousands of truck photos. The Trucking Truth photo gallery also has an incredible variety of truck photographs and related content submitted by our members.

I’ll add to what Old School replied with...

Swift pulling Walmart (that would be me) 0785845001541090735.jpg

Swift under Target

Swift under Sherwin & Williams (paint)

JB Hunt under Walmart

Western Express under Walmart GM

JB Hunt under a K-Line 40’ ISO container & chassis.

UPS under a CSX 53’ donestic container & chassis

UPS under an XTRA 48’ rental trailer.

G-Town, that Wal-Mart/Swift combination doesn't look grossly mismatched at all. Both units are basically plain white. Many trailers with bodies have that plain white/silver finish and perhaps plain black lettering/numbers which seem universal and can go with any-color tractor fine.

Some tractors and trailers do have a perfect-matching liveries in custom colors and both are probably under the same owner.

But just imagine a bright green tractor pulling a navy blue trailer or a purple tractor pulling a UPS brown trailer. Just for fun I'm going to search the web for the weirdest cab/trailer color mismatches I can find. Railroad freight trains sometimes have a weird mismatch of colors and railcar types in their consists and sometimes they have a string of uniform railcars all the same colors, type and markings. While train-watching, I'm more impressed by long uniform strings of railcars which is common on a unit freight (one commodity only) as opposed to a mixed or manifest freight.


Bill of Lading

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.

Here is more for you...

This was a couple of weeks ago, not many Sammy trailers left...


And one of the older Wally dry vans.


Dry Van:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.

I’m happy to grab a tractor without a thick layer of dirt and grime on it. LOL
